Improved Plastic Anisotropy in Asymmetrically Rolled 6xxx Alloy
Formability, which is the property that characterizes the ability of a material to be deformed without fracture or necking, is strongly correlated to the crystallographic texture. Al alloys from the 6xxx series with non-conventional textures were produced by hot and cold asymmetric rolling processes. The plastic responses i.e. the formability of differently textured samples are characterized based on crystal plasticity modeling.
